Video: Real Estate and Human Trafficking
Ben Briggs lays out the plans for Freedom Place, the first ever billion-dollar office tower to be built with the goal of profits going towards fighting human trafficking.
The U.N. estimates that worldwide slavery exceeds 36,000,000 people, more than ever before in human history.
"Human traffickers are earning billions of dollars on the backs and in the beds of our children," says the Not My Life film director, Academy Award nominee, Robert Bilheimer, "and yet no one knows this is happening. We have a huge responsibility, right now, to learn the truth and act on it."
The average age in Bombay’s red light district is just 14 years. 2,000,000 sex slaves are trafficked into prostitution every year.
Freedom Place is designed to generate hundreds of millions of dollars of profit to combat this horrendous problem.
